Scheduled For A C & P??? Filing A Claim?
I've been posting this again and again over the years and it's still one of the best ways I know to win your case. Published in 2002 the principles and much of the verbiage still applies and is in daily use at the VA.
Maintaining a safe environment...Can you be safe alone?
Communication...Are you able to communicate?
Breathing...Do you need oxygen or a breathing apparatus?
Eating and drinking...Are you able to swallow safely?
Elimination...Can you manage your own waste?
Washing and dressing...Are you able to maintain a reasonable level of hygiene?
Controlling temperature...If too warm or cold, are you able to adjust your environment?
Mobilisation...Are you able to get outside? Room to room?
Working and playing...Are you employed? Do you enjoy any recreational activity?
Expressing sexuality...Are you able to consummate a satisfactory sexual act?
Sleeping...Do you get an age appropriate amount of rest?
Death and dying...Are you able to understand the nature of your death and the process of dying?
A new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine found that sufficient evidence supported an association between exposure to seven factors and detrimental reproductive effects in men or women who served in the Gulf War or developmental effects in their children.
Adding an illness to VA’s presumptive list means that veterans applying for disability benefits do not need to prove a connection between their illness and their time in service. Instead, they only need to show that they served in the covered theater during the relevant period and that they now suffer from the conditions.
There Are Protections...When it comes to debt collection, disability income enjoys special status.

Jim: The Supreme Court denied certiorari on this case—meaning they won’t hear it. So, veterans are left with no recourse to bring suit against DoD contractors in theater concerning burn pits. Any relief will have to flow, in my view, by Congress directing VA to make a determination if there should be a presumptive condition in connection to burn pits. VA would have to get a body of knowledge in order to make any such recommendation and would most probably look to National Institutes of Health to make such a study.

In the Republican Party's headlong battle to undermine and deplete our federal government in any and every way they can find, the latest intended victim is our nation's medical system for war veterans, the Veterans Administration.
